what's better KFC vs Popeye
vanity | 3/27

Posted on 03/27/2011 3:35:45 PM PDT by Temple Owl

We just had Popeyes for dinner. There was a lively discussion regarding it compared to KFC. I'd like your thoughts. I say you can't beat the red beans and rice though.

Popeye all the way, no comparison. Both the regular and spicy are great.

I’d say they both taste like chicken.

Never have tried Popeyes or Churches. I prefer a ton of coating and a peppery/spicy seasoning. If KFC had an extra crispy skin sandwich I would order it.

Popeye’s without a doubt. Lately QA at KFC seems to be on the decline locally.

I definetly like Popeyes mashed potatoes and gravy. The little bits of meat and just a little bit of heat...mmmm.

Popeye’s used to have the very best onion rings, by far. I don’t know why they stopped.

Love the cajun rice and red beans/rice.

And the chicken is better, especially the extra spicy.

But I do like KFC original for a change.

This thread will be pulled, but I still like KFC. Popeyes very well might have superior chicken, but I still crave KFC though. Popeye’s rice is better then any fry or side dish from any other fast food joint. Meal in itself

KFC is the worst fried chicken on earth. Their success baffles me. I’ve had Popeye’s a few times. It’s not great, but it’s better than KFC. I like Church’s and Bojangles. I think Bojangles is the best.

Popeyes edges out KFC but I still like the KFC original recipe. But as far as side dishes then Popeyes smokes KFC with their red beans and rice!

Which is a pretty good trick considering what it really is. :-)

Well, did you like the Popeye’s? The last time I ate KFC was over a quarter century ago, and was sick for about a day afterward. A good fried chicken chain back in the day was Pioneer. ....in L.A. But one can’t beet the old joints down in the ‘hood.

Never been to Popeyes. Haven’t been to KFC in decades. My former MIL always fed KFC when we were over for dinner on a Sunday. She was lazy that way. But, I liked KFC as far as fast food goes, so it wasn’t a big deal.

Yet, if we want prepared chicken we’ll pick it up at Logli’s or our local grocery. The salads are good, so are the beans and potatoes. And, it’s cheaper. But we don’t do prepared chicken often. Disclaimer: Not all Logli’s are comparable...

I love KFC original, but I’m not so fond of KFC side dishes. The one time I tasted Popeye’s chicken, I was unimpressed. Since the only reason to go into such a place would be for the chicken, I have no idea how Popeye’s side dishes compare.

Does KFC sitll cook their chicken in a pressure vessel? I didn’t care for it because of that method of cooking.

I prefer sit down restaurants with a great reputation and known for good chicken dinners rather than fast food joints.

Popeyes is the best. A better rags to riches story too about Copelands life and times. I understand when he sold, he kept exclusive distribution to the spices. So his company was still making money.

I also understand that KFC is going crazy in China (People line up overnight to buy their chicken) What I dont understand is why Popeyes isn't making inroads there. (Chinese would go nuts for the spicy chicken)

I have never heard of Popeyes or the others, but KFC (or Col. Sander's as we used to call it) is not as good as it used to be. Their coleslaw is very good though.

Neither.

The best “fast food” chicken I ever ate was at “Lee's Fried Chicken”. The best.

The best “regional chain” fried chicken I ever ate was at “Bushes Fried Chicken” in Temple, TX.

The best fried chicken I ever at period, was a AQ Chicken in Arkansas. Greasy stuff, but absolutely wonderful.

I was an outside salesman for 30+ years and learned how to gage a restaurant in an unfamiliar area. “The Parking Lot Test”. Ignore the building or restaurant name. The busiest parking lot always wins. The locals know where the good food values are.

POPEYES!

At one point, way back when, they had this cornbread stuffing side dish and it ROCKED.

Popeyes ad: all white meat chicken strips served in either Classic Mild or
New Orleans Spicy Flavor....the great Popeyes flavor without the bones.

Church’s is rare in California, and they tend to have their stores only in the “ghetto” areas.

I have never heard of Popeyes or the others, but KFC (or Col. Sander's as we used to call it) is not as good as it used to be. Their coleslaw is very good though.

I think Popeye's is a southern thing. Same for Church's and Bojangles. In Texas we had Church's and Bush's, both very good.

I think someone mentioned going to "ethnic" neighborhoods for chicken earlier. When we were kids my dad would pile us in the car and drive us to the "black part of town", as he called it, because they had the best chicken. I don't know if he was full of it or what. But we made the drive nonetheless.

??? Can still get it at the KFC around these parts. Of course biscuits and gravy are real popular around here.

Slight edge to KFC original but I eat Popeye's spicy, too. I like the Popeye Cajun Rice and the Red Beans and Rice. I also like Church's. Damn, I'm about to grow feathers if I keep on eating all this chicken.
